The Dublin artist's Best Of is the most popular record in the country this week.
After an incredible run at the top, Ellie Goulding has finally been bumped from the No.1 spot on the Irish Album Chart this week, and it's one of our own displacing her.
Damien Dempsey gives more evidence for impending national treasure status as It's All Good – The Best Of, his first compilation, is in with a bullet at No. 1. Damo is featured in the new issue of Hot Press (Graham Norton cover), where he talks about the compilation and much more with our own Olaf Tyaransen.
It means recent Hot Press cover star Ms Goulding's Halcyon/Halcyon Days, which gives another strong showing, is now down to No. 2.
Kodaline's In A Perfect World is just below that, making it two Irish artists in the Top 5, whilst Beyonce holds firm in fourth and Bruce Springsteen's High Hopes drops to No. 5.
Elsewhere, The Overtones' Saturday Night At The Movies is the second highest new entry, debuting at No. 11. Click here for the full chart.
Over on the Indie Chart, Arctic Monkeys leap from No. 3 to pole position, with sales of AM clearly benefitting from their Brit Awards showing during the week. The Gloaming are still at No. 2, whilst London Grammar tumble to No. 3. James Vincent McMorrow and Finbar Furey round off the Top 5. Here's the full Indie Chart rundown.
